Monastiraki – Thripti – Kavousi

A track recorded by the Mountaineering Club of Heraklion along the E4 European Trail.

It’s 21 km long, it takes about 8 hours kai the difference of altitude is about 1600m.

The route is along a dirt road and a clear, well-signed trail. Up to the small chapel of Agia Anna the way is mild up, then it becomes steeper. The way down is not difficult and offers a nice view.

The route can be cut down to 6 hours if you don’t ascend to the peak Estavromenos Christos at 1476m and you decide to stop at thesmall village of Thrypti, where there is a tavern.

It can be combined with Geocaching.
